KAISO: WHEN OIL AND GAS DONE

By Malcolm “Jai” Kernahan

 

Dat day when oil an’ gas done

T&T will want to hear Desperadoes, Phase 2 & Tokyo

We will buy CD from De Fosto, Rudder, Bunji & Rio

Cause there will be no foreign Video and Cable Flow

An’ Rubadari Victor will be in Charge of TV and Radio Show

When oil an’ gas done

 

Dat day when oil an’ gas done

We will remember we have Keshorn from Toco

Plantain, Wild Meat, Gomblay Tania an’ Sweet Mango

Dat we forget to build d bridge across the ocean to Tobago

When oil an’ gas done

 

Dat day when oil an’ gas done

Drug lords will abandon SUVs with Millions in T&T Currency

Cause no gas in the tank dey cyar reach d bank

Subsidy long gone and d budget speech simple an frank

When oil an’ gas done

 

Dat day when oil an’ gas done

Kamla & Anand go b back to dey lawyer prank

No 61 billion budget and crooked economist in d Central Bank

Clause 34 an’ D Integrity Commission will have no more rank

And Penn State University who appoint we Police Commissioner go get blank

When oil an’ gas done

 

Dat day when oil an’ gas done

Manning will ride ah donkey cart looking for Calder Hart

An’ Rowley will realize dat Landate was too late

While some Ministers go be heading for the prison gate

Charged for the Billions dey rob the State

When oil an’ gas done

 

Dat day when oil an’ gas done

Even Carolyn an’ Coudray will remember farine, dasheen and avocado

When dey looking for a farm in Cumana, Manzanilla or Mayaro

An’ d 4 Billion dollar food import bill will drop low low low

No Soya, Wheat, Yankee Rice and English Potato

Because we forced to plant we own ochro an eddo

When oil an’ gas done

 

Dat day when oil and gas done

Mr. Big will have no more 9s an’ AK 47 to arm dem deadly clip

An’ East P.O.S. will return to the City of drums an’ music

Badman with pan sticks will beg Radoes to stay in d district

And Rude Girls will storm Picton an Laventille Folk Performers real quick

Den we go build we own Film Industry cause Trini could act and look slick

But dat is only when oil an’ gas done
